The least noted #refugee crisis is the flow of more than 1 million people OUT of #Venezuela, many of whom have had no real medical care for years amid collapse of V's govt syst. Unvaccinated, they are spreading #measles where they go. Example: Colombia: rcnradio.com/salud/casos-de…
[cont] At least 11 countries are affected by #measles due to the mass migration of more than 1 million #Venezuelans -- many of whom have never been properly vaccinated thanks to V govt catastrophe.

Inside #Venezuela hospitals are filling up with #measles patients -- mostly unvaccinated children and young adults. This is what happens when government ceases to perform basic public health functions for its people.

Went to Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan today. Official population at 53,967, according to @UNHCR as of February 2018. All Syrian #refugees.

In many ways it was not what I expected.
First thing you notice is how remote the location is — some 100 kms east of Amman; 20 kms from Azraq town; 75 kms to Saudi Arabia; 255 kms to Iraq; and 90 kms to the Syrian border — from which its inhabitants fled.
At the same time, the harshness of the setting — a hardscrabble, sprawling 15 square km patch, scratched, etched and stretched out of endless rolling desert.

The perimeter was equally formidable, with security fencing, official patrols, check points and razor wire.

The UNHCR are offering shelter to refugees across the world. Most of those crisis are forgotten emergencies. 236,000 Congolese refugees have fled in Uganda so far. With @Refugees I visited a settlement there, got to meet some of them, and they all had stories to tell. #refugee
Sammy : now blind after he has been persecuted and tortured in Congo. Now lives in a small house in Rwamwanja (the refugee settlement) with his wife. Speaks with a soft voice. Told me he likes to take walks at dusk, because there's less stridence.
Ashaka : young, promising dancer. He told me that there's a sense of violent interruption when you have to flee - your life's suddenly shattered, and then all you can do is wait. He often meets with other teenagers at Rwamwanja's Youth Center for music workshops.
